It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Margot Theresa (Tress) Gregg of Grande Prairie, Alberta. She passed peacefully on August 18, 2019 in Prairie Lake Hospice.
Tress was born in Davidson, Saskatchewan, the third child of Ken and Georgina Sampson and grew up on the family farm in rural Davidson. She attended Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Art and Science, where she graduated with her diploma in Nursing. Later in life she went on to become a Nurse Practitioner.
Tress moved to Calgary, Alberta where she met Monte and they were married in 1977. During their 42 years of marriage they adopted 2 children, Darren and Corrine and the family lived in Calgary, Rainbow Lake, Lloydminster and then retired in Grande Prairie to be near their children.
She was always very involved in the community, always volunteering for a variety of community organizations. When she wasn’t volunteering, she enjoyed quilting, crocheting, gardening and spending time with family and friends. She also enjoyed the yearly vacations she and Monte took to Mexico.
